Being online for a while

Dear dating site-mates -
I guess this is intended for reactions by both men and women to the sorts of postings on this and other sites as well.

First of all, what's with posting the penis pictures, guys? What evidence do you have that women are choosing or even considering partners because they see a really good looking apparatus? This isn't shoe shopping where we are looking for something just our taste. We CARE about what's attached to the penis. After all, they do arrive together to all events.

Personally, I won't respond to any ad or invitation or wink that includes that sort of photo. I am not a prude - in real life the real thing is a good part of the picture. I do have rather high standards.

Why not? Because someone who uses that strategy does not really understand women and therefore I don't want to spend my time teaching someone about females and what we want. There's good books on the market for that.

Here's another lament. Every other guy's ad talks about how he likes to please his partner. Golly, guys, come up with some new lines. First of all, we have a hard time believing this. Remember, we were not born yesterday. You may have good intentions - but do you really know what women want? Have you done any reading on this? Cause if you sent us a penis picture, you didn't read any of the books.

I'd say you got your point across. P.S. Unless you want to see another "penis pic", dont access my profile.

Let me try to explain.
First of all there are some ladies here that do enjoy seeing a penis or two from time to time.
Secondly there are guys here that need to use some descression for whatever reason it might be. So the penis pic is an option instead of showing there face for there wives, customers, fans or the general public to see.
Now I do understand that many ladies would rather wait for that special moment to discover this part of a man. Thats fine.
Attraction & good conversation usually work best for me. But I'm just one guy. We all use what we have to attract a lady here. Ive been known to use my flight bennifits to lure a lady closer! lol...
Do you like to travel?
I dont have a penis pic here, but thats just me. I personaly think a nice face pic with some other naughty pics in ones network would be the best way to go. That way if a lady wants to see naughty pics you invite her to your network. If not she doesnt have to look at it.
But there are many poeple here with many differant tastes & opinions.
& they are intitled to them.
Does that help explain things a bit?

Thanks, "Just me" for your comments. Do I like to travel???? I live to travel. Some people get cabin fever if they don't get out of the house. I get cabin fever if I don't get out of the country. I will visit country number 42 in June, revisit 2 favorites countries at other times in the next few months.

By the way, it's "discretion" not "descression"
"their wives" not "there wives"
"entitled" rather than "intitled."
"different" rather than "differant."

Thats very interesting! What country is #42? Where are you planning to go?
I went to Beijing China a couple months ago. That was a busy trip but very fun & the food was great!
I can be happy just going for an all day drive or camping, But traveling long distances & out of the country is so exciting!
I keep hopping that I can meet a nice lady where eventually we could travel together. I work for an airline, & want to go to new places.
The only thing is I don't always want to go alone.

Are you an English teacher? I'm not the greatest speller am I?

Country # 42 will be Jamaica. That's just a weekend as I am giving a talk. I will also return to Turkey soon, and to France during the summer. Two lovely countries.
Yes, I am a sort of a teacher and it involves English. And you were "hoping" rather than "hopping" - the latter being what rabbits do. You are correct that you are not the best speller. What's it like working for an airline?

*laughing out loud* Never better said!
But um... what about the kinds of photos girls put out on here? Boy, I could just sit on My homepage, refreshing it for... hours. *dreamy*
...I don't care if it's really them or not. And who cares if they read??? ...Much, anyway. lol
A very warm welcome to the world of blogs, classylady. *smiling*

Working for an airline is like many other industries. Lots of up & downs. No pun intended! lol....
Flight benefits are good, but its a bit nerve wracking seeing one of your planes on CNN. Makes you think a lot of things.

So I take it you do a lot of public speaking?
where else have you been? I bet you have lots of great exotic pics!
Thats half the reason I travel!

Ive never been to any of the countries you mentioned, but would love to one day. I have a tendency to to a lot of traveling in the states, seeing certain mountains, rivers, lakes, or whatever catches my interest.

Where else have I been? This will take a while. First of all, just returned last weekend from my 4th trip to Turkey. This was business with some fun as well. By far, Turkey is THE most hospitable country I have ever visited.

Let's see - Hong Kong, Thailand, Singapore, New Zeland, Australia, China, Taiwan in the Pacific sector.

Europe - France, England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Russia (Was USSR then), Czech Republic, Netherlands, Slovak Republic, Slovinnia, Croatia, Hungary, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Turkey, Spain,

Caribbean/North America
Mexico, Canada, Trinidad/Tobago, Antigua, St. Lucia, Barbados, Bahamas
(also Tortola, St. John and St. Maarten, but those are not soverign states)

Kenya, South Africa - I will have to go and find my official list as I am clearly forgetting some here.

By the way, I have also been in most US states. Just missed the upper west-midwest - ones that have no major city and no conference centers (Wyoming, Kansas, Idaho, Dakotas, Montana, Iowa, Nebraska). Been to all others, and I agree there's much to see and do in our beautiful country. It's just that I do not limit myself to American soil.

Yes, I do much public speaking. In May I spoke in Chicago and in Istanbul.

Thats an impressive list there. I would never have guessed Turkey to be the most hospitable of them all though! I hope one day I can say Ive been to half of those places. I tent to want to take long weekend trips & just try to see & photograph all I can. in 4-5 days.

The weekend before the holiday weekend I did a road trip through Michigan photographing lighthouses. I got to tour one of them & they really got me interested in learning more about them & seeing more of them. Many of them are in such pretty places.

How was the trip to Turkey? What is good to buy there?
It would be so interesting to talk to you face to face. I like your attitude & apparent sense of adventure.

Dear Playtime and others,
Turkey was great, as usual. I accidentally bought 2 carpets from the Kayser region of the country. They're works of art. Carpets are not dutiable goods, for some reason. What else to buy there? Leather clothing, silk in many forms, pottery, glass lanterns, Turkish tea cups and teas. Turkey was the end of the "silk trail." It's a place where ancient and modern co-exist nicely and tastefully.

I would certainly recommend it as a tourist destination. If you like Medieval architecture, I would recommend booking a hotel in the old sity, which is called "Sultanamet" on the map.

Playtime -
Since my last exchange with you about Turkey, I have been in Jamaica. I was only there for a weekend, part of which was work. All in all, it was a fun place - good food, nice beaches, beautiful sunsets, prices okay.

To respond to your earlier question - prices in Turkey are not especially cheap, but our dollar does go a bit further. Meals are good price-wise. Hotels cary greatly in price. Shopping is where you save the most. Taxis are kind of pricey.

Thanks for your post, Pete.
One of the things I like about this venue is that you get to know someone from the inside out, before you decide whether or not to proceed. If you meet someone in real life rather than virtually, it's all about the outside, before you get to matters of substance. You can cover a lot of territory in written communication before you decide if you want to meet someone, and rule out lots of features that you know aren't a good match for you.

4thighs, If you dont like what someone has to say then just move along to someone that you do like what they say. Everyone has the right to look here for what ever they want. There is no need for rudeness here. Try to have some class, Ok? Having some class will help you get laid. Really it will!!!

1st I agree about the picture of the penis, I never gave taking a picture of mine any thought.
But, I have the disagree about the books, you can't learn about women or relationships from a book. Books on that subject or any other are written for one purpose - to make the writer money, they aren't out to save humanity.
I have seen so many books/articles writen about parenting by someone who never had children. Real life is where to learn about real things.

Well, thanks Cardinalwave for your kind comments. We did have two enjoyable meetings. The rest of these comments are for mk1867. I agree that it's a bit odd to write a book on parenting if you don't have kids, or never raised any. But books don't take the place of real life. Both contribute to a fulfilled life. As a writer I can tell you that the money I have made doesn't come close to remunerating the amount of time that goes into my writing. But then I am not Stephen King either with those kinds of enormous sales.

Mostly writers write because they feel compelled to write, whether it's to tell a story - they are storytellers - or to share knowledge with the potential of helping others. Maybe this sounds high and mighty but I belong to some writer's groups and that's largely true.

For my travel freinds out there -
Just returned from France. Although I have been there previously, my co-travelers had not. We spent 3 nights in Paris, doing mostly the usual tourist things, except that it was exceptionally hot and crowded. Still, the dinner boat on the Seine was lovely even if the food was mediocre. The concert at Notre Dame - a treat just to hear the grand organ.

From there we collected our rental car and headed South. It's a long day's drive to Avignon where we spent the first evening. Avignon was admist a theatre festival and full of lively people. From then we went to Isle Sur the Sorgue, a small medieval town, on the Sorgue river. This time it was most difficult to locate our hotel which was sandwiched in back narrow streets, almost too scary to drive a car on.

We took a half day tour of the Lavender producing areas near Sault and Gordes. We got to walk in Lavender fields, then see how they manufacture things from the plants.

Our favorite I think was Arles. We arrived on Market Day and the village was filled with vendors, craftsmen, antique dealers, and it was all so wonderful and lively. Of course Provence is known for the bright colored textiles and we all came home with some.

Arles to Paris was a very lloooonnnnggggg ride back. All day in the car. BTW, gas prices there are about $5.00 a gallon. So next time you are at the gas pump, just remember it could be worse (and probably will be soon)!
